    My personal preference is to switch to 1- 2 tbsp/gal unsulphured molasses (here is a good one IMHO) with water I pH down to around 6.0. I also hit it with a bit of CalMag. And IF the there is a lot of yellowing I will add a tiny bit of something with N in it. I find it lets me prolong the finish so they eat up all the other nutes.

    Since doing this, the ash in the bowl is much more white and there is a more complete burn of the flower. And as others have said - cuts significantly down on the harsh. I have never found that there is any "couchlock", myself, from letting it go longer. I find that the difference is that the flowers of the strain get an opportunity to more fully express themselves.

    Part of the art of the grow is in predicting when the time to start this phase of feeding/watering. IMO it is around two weeks from harvest, maybe even a bit earlier, which is probably why my own experience teaches me to add a touch of CalMag and N. But I will say starting earlier and letting them "finish", even if you start early, produces a superior cured smoke than feeding too much too deep into the harvest window.

    Once you get a few grows under your belt you will see it.

      There is *NO* scientific evidence that flushing improves cure. Maybe it does. Nobody knows.

        Are you sure they’re autos? I don’t grow them but after 6 weeks you shouldn’t be seeing a lot of bud by now..

              That's flushed the whole flushing thing down the pan, then!

            oh for god's sake, I was talking to a grower today about @Mr.furley's article and she said some people were talking you need to add pineapple juice to the flush water. I don't know WTF is next, folks.

            After that illuminating article from Mr.furley , I say fuck the flush. I'm going with the flow (of nutes)
            Been an interesting thread though! Thanks.
